Some tourist travel tips for Curaçao

From the hundreds of Caribbean islands to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which destination in this region to head to. Well, we have good news: it’s hard to confuse the turquoise paradise, here each place offers something unique and different, so we present you 10 of the best opportunities to travel to the Caribbean.

 Dominica: Plenty of natural beauty
Dominica is an island nation in the Caribbean. In Latin, its name means “Sunday” – this is the day on which Columbus discovered the island.
Lush peaks, deep valleys and 365 rivers cover the eastern Caribbean island of Dominica. It covers an area of ​​499 km2 and is undergoing a luxury hotel boom, including the new five-star Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski. This luxury hotel fits perfectly into this island paradise. A guided walk to the Valley of the Wasteland leads you to the second largest boiling lake in the world. Within the UNESCO-designated Morton Trois Pitons National Park, you can refresh and swim with water from the Emerald Pool. You can also enjoy world-class scuba diving and snorkeling, combined with a sandy beach for a relaxing break.

 Northern and Middle Caicos: For untouched Caribbean.
Discovered in 1512 by the Spanish navigator Juan Ponce de Leon (until then they were uninhabited)

Connected by ferry to the far more developed Turks and Caicos Islands in Providence, North and Middle Caicos provide a real rural island life, devoid of shiny resorts.
In Middle Caicos you will find one of the most spacious and breathtaking sands on Mundjin Harbor Beach. The steep cliffs and dramatic coastal rock formations, the crashing waves in them, make this place enchanting and for endless enjoyment of the Caribbean beauties.
Again on Central Caicos, Bambarra Beach offers a desert-sandy coastline where the surf is much calmer and suitable for swimming.
For visitors interested in the history of the island, the North Caicos Wade’s Green Plantation offers a brief takeaway back in time, to the era of Loyalist plantations in Trucks and Caicos.

Everything here is very quiet and relaxed. There are several bars and restaurants on the beach and several hotels. But most of all, you will have this Paradise all to yourself.

 Curacao: About city life
About 145 kilometers north of Venezuela, the island of Curacao boasts one of the busiest urban centers in the Caribbean. Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao, offers a distinctive Euro-Caribbean experience, where Dutch colonial architecture translates Amsterdam into pastel palettes in this autonomous country in the Royal Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Handelskaid, a strip of bright buildings on St. Anne’s Bay, collides with the Punda district, where shops and galleries form beautiful, picturesque streets.

In nearby Pietermaai, modern restaurants and cafés attract visitors looking for distinctive, local nuances. PasaBon entertainment guide is a great way to stay up to date with what’s happening on the island. In addition to being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Willemstad is also home to several interesting museums, a rich street art scene and the Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue, the oldest, ever-ruling synagogue in America.

Saba: aviation thrill
Saba is an island in the Caribbean Sea, part of the small Antilles. The island is also the highest point of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in general – Mount Seneri 888 meters high.
This Caribbean island with an area of ​​8 km2 – owned by the Kingdom of the Netherlands – is not a well-known destination for tourists. Not much happens on the way to the beaches, and it can only be reached by air through the neighboring island of St. Maarten.
But to get there is a thrill – on the island of Saba there is a track and it is only 397 meters long, which makes it the shortest track in the world.
This dramatic landing on the island gives way to the impact of the terrain, through lush tropical forests and volcanic rocks with the aptly named for the occasion Mount Scenery as a tourist center.
Diving in the coastal waters is another top attraction for this not yet well-known island.
